Instrument panel in petrol tank

Forums

I'm hoping someone can give me the head diameter and head thickness of the 7 screws which hold the instrument panel onto the petrol tank of the 1930's petrol tanks.

Thanks.

I can measure them but I do know Russell Motors had them in stock.  Apparently they are also used on lesser machines (Matchless). It's pouring with rain...

Thanks David. Greatly appreciated. I can now get down to business and turn up a batch.

That's how mine looked.  Not saying it was original....

 

Same dimensions as David gave.

Cheers

Jon

I still have some old screws. They are identical.

Next question is the panel colour. Early ones seem to have been black with red lines. I am fairly sure later ones (1936×?) were dull chrome. But I think (but not sure) they had black rims and a red coach line inside it and almost overlapping the screws. Very difficult to find pictures looking down on any bikes.
